4. Belltown

Well Belltown, this is your song.  Until only recently, I didn't like how my voice sounded on this track.  Now I'm OK with it.  I'm not completely enchanted by it, but I don't actively dislike it.  Besides that, it was a chance to write for accordion.  Sure, there's an accordion on TGV, but it's fake.  This one is real.  The trombone and bass are also real.  Everything else is fake: the percussion, the mallets and everything else.  The backup singers also do exist and I'm still quite taken by Alicia Dara's countermelody on the last verse.  Without that, this tune would have been completely hopeless.
